Six Receive Special Recognition by Jeff Dubois
members of the Ottawa PC Users’ Group were awarded Ontario Volunteer
Service Awards in a special ceremony held at Ottawa’s Tudor Hall on
April 15th, 2018. The awards, presented on behalf of the Hon. Laura
Albanese, Minister of Citizenship, recognize individuals with
long-standing records of volunteerism and service with organizations in
the Province of Ontario. Each of the recipients were presented with a
stylized trillium service pin and a personalized certificate to
acknowledge their respective years of service.
Hon. Marie-France Lalonde (MPP Ottawa-Orleans) and the Hon. John Fraser
(MPP Ottawa South) attended the ceremony to personally recognize Chris Taylor, Mark Cayer, Robert Walker, Jocelyn Doire, Brigitte Lord and Alan German.
Ottawa PC Users’ Group would like to thank each of the six recipients
for their ongoing contributions to the group. We would also like to
recognize Bob Gowan, Wayne Houston, Morris Turpin and Gail Eagen, whose
names will be advanced .
those of you interested in statistics, the 6 individuals recognized
have a combined total of 127 years of service. How long is 127 years?
It’s roughly 3X longer than Microsoft have been in existence. It’s
about 4X longer than Windows has been around. It’s about 5X longer
than the Internet has been widely available and about 5X longer than
Linux has been around. And about 7X longer than Pentium IVs have been
around. It’s a very, very, very long time.
